Morphos This page is dedicated to providing information on running Linux on the Pegasos. ISO images included. We would love to see a better Yellow Dog Linux support and also Darwin on Pegasos.

>And adding a nice differentiating GUI on top of Darwin is a lot of work, much more than we want to invest, and work that would be better invested in MorphOS, which is what you are calling for.

Excuse me, but modifying Gnome is much less work than fixing MorphOS. MorphOS is an "immature" OS in terms of stability and features. Darwin is not. Linux is not. FreeBSD is not.
You need 10x times more work to invest on MorphOS than what you would need for a modified Darwin product which is pretty much working well, today.

>Furthermore, if you go the MacOS X clone route you are thinking,

No, I am not thinking of cloning Mac OS X. I never even mentioned something like it.

I am thinking of modifying Gnome or KDE (my personal option would be Gnome because of its "less is more" philosophy) to look and feel unique. And unique, does not mean "mac os x".

>you would soon have a mega lawsuite, and all the Apple legal department on your back.

Apple has no grounds to sue you over Darwin. Darwin is open source. The stuff on top of it, is just Gnome and X. Also open source and not in Apple's domain.

I think you have mixed up a few things... ;)
